Some one asked me for my telephone number, but I am confused about what the correct response should be:

You can call me at XXX

or

You can reach me at XXX.

Can anyone explain the difference between these two sentences?

    The correct way is either by using "on" or "at" depending on location. As @JohnFeltz says, we in Britain would use "on" and in the US, they would use "at" – Chris Rogers Dec 21 '16 at 4:58
  • However using either would be understood on both sides of the Atlantic. – Chris Rogers Dec 21 '16 at 4:59

Its ###-###-####

My (mobile) number is ###-###-#####

The best place to call/get/reach me is ###-###-#####

You can call/get/reach me at/on ###-###-#####

Of course, nowadays the easiest way to give someone your number is to just call or text their phone, that way they have the record and don't have to transcribe.

What's your number? I'll text you.
